Manang Welcomes Foreign Tourists, Health Protocols Compliance Mandatory

The Manang district administration has allowed entrance of foreign tourists to the district amid COVID-19.

But it has imposed the health protocol compliance for them—they must have a COVID-19 test report, hotel bookings and fully vaccinated against the virus, said Chief District Officer Bishnu Lamichhane, adding that health safety would be increased.

“The infection has not been controlled fully. Only infection rate is decreasing. Health protocols should be followed while reviving tourism amid the infection,” he said.

The decision in this regard was taken by the meetings of the district COVID-19 crisis management committee and the district administration office, he said.

Beforehand, one visiting the district needs to take permission from the district administration.

Those entering the district should be tested for the infection. In case of COVID-19 position, one needs to stay in isolation. Peak season for tourism is from September to November in general.
